£860raised of £1,000 target by 41 supporters

    Weʼve raised £860 to buy toys for Hamilton Foodbank to distribute at Christmas to those that need their help.

    Hamilton, Scotland, United Kingdom
    Funded on Monday, 11th December 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    St Peter's in Hamilton has been a long time supporter of the Hamilton Food Bank with weekly donations now averaging well over 150kg per week. Now with Christmas fast approaching and after a conversation during the week, the people who run the food bank and Fr King have came up with the idea of asking people to donate, new and nearly new toys that can be given to the food bank users for their kids.

    I was thinking about it last night and as collecting toys from guys on the internet isn't feasible I thought that we could try raising some money that will allow us to buy toys to donate to Hamilton Food Bank so they can distribute them to the appropriate families who are in need this Christmas.

    Imagine how you would feel if you knew there was no chance of you getting your kid at least one gift this Christmas?

    I initially set the target at £250 as I didn't want to look greedy but I'll raise it and keep raising it, if - as I expect - you guys keep smashing the targets.

    And please remember that ANY donation, no matter how small, will be gratefully received and appreciated.

    This donations page will remain open until Monday 11th December.

      There was no problem with the timescale of withdrawing money and getting it as cash to the women - it was somebody else being a bit thick... honest!

      That's the target been put up to £1000. Every little helps and if you live in the Hamilton area decent quality or nearly new toys can be handed into St Peter's in Laighstonehall.

      That's us getting near the £750 mark which is unbelievable, I really can't thank you all enough. I'm going to raise the limit to £1000 and hopefully with 3 weeks to go we'll smash it senseless. I only noticed the other day about the time scale of getting the cash out which could be a problem for the women at the foodbank time wise but I assure you every penny will be accounted for and explained. Thanks again everyone.
